Please read the following important legal disclaimers and notices carefully before using this Web Site:
The purpose of this Notice is to inform you of how Ryland protects and uses your nonpublic personal information during the course of your home buying experience with our family of companies. Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and for California Residents, Civil Code Section 1798.83, require that we provide you with a notice of our privacy policies and practices which informs you of the types of information that we collect from you and the persons or entities to whom your personal information may be disclosed.
In the course of your home buying experience with Ryland, you may share non-public personal information about yourself with us in a number of ways. You may provide personal information to us on applications or other forms when communicating or transacting with us in writing, electronically through e-mail, the Internet, or by phone and text message, and through requests for forms or literature in connection with your purchase of a Ryland home. On occasion, such information may come from consumer reporting agencies and those companies providing services to us incident to your home purchase, such as property appraisers.
We treat this information as confidential and recognize the importance of protecting access to it. We may share information within the Ryland family of companies to best meet your needs, but we do not disclose non-public personal information about you with third parties unless necessary to complete your purchase of a Ryland home, and any mortgage, title, insurance and escrow transactions incident to your home purchase, or as otherwise permitted by law.
From time to time, Ryland may be approached by third party non-affiliated companies and organizations that have a product or service that we believe may be of interest to you. We may share certain personally-identifiable information such as your name, address, and e-mail address with these companies in an effort to help you find these resources. We will, however, offer you the opportunity to "opt out" of having this personally-identifiable information shared with third parties that are not affiliated with Ryland. Should you decide to opt out of having your personally identifiable information shared with non-affiliated third parties, please let us know by visiting the following section of the Website at http://m.ryland.com//privacy/, or you may contact the company at (800) 638-1768 or send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. Within Ryland and its affiliated companies, access to such information is limited to those who need it to perform their jobs, such as completing transactions incident to your home purchase, mortgage, insurance, title and escrow services, or informing you of new products or services. Finally, our Code of Ethics, which applies to all employees, restricts the use of customer information and requires that it be held in strict confidence.
The policies set forth in this notice are effective at the time of publishing, but are subject to change in order to best meet the needs of our customers and to reflect changes in local, state and federal laws. Changes in these policies will be reflected when the Web Site is updated periodically.
